Question about Nissan Pulsar

Open Question

Hi! A couple of weeks ago my N16 Pulsar started to rev high intermittently. It happens more often when the car is cold and when the car is fully warm it is barely noticeable. It is an automatic but the problem can be best described as if you were driving a manual car with the accelerator pedal in a fixed position then pressing in the clutch, revs go up and then releasing the clutch. Please help!

SOURCE: rough idle, backfire on acceleration

check everything you can under the hood your air intake system all of it especially make sure all clamps are tight .. and make sure all vacuum hoses are good and not cracking or broken or just loose . you might run a little fuel cleaner through a tank of gas too cleaning the engine fuel system up some. just a few ideas..

SOURCE: Engine either dies or revs high at stops-86 nissan pulsar

Its vacuum hose related. Mine does the same thing. Am looking for a vacuum hose diagram so I can take off the carb..... Check your vacuum hoses for leaks by spraying something like WD-40 on them and look for bubbles.

SOURCE: engine revs but car doesn't accelerate

Since you did not say what type of transmission you have i will suspect the clutch is slipping if it's a manual.
If it's an automatic, it could be several things. Low fluid level...clogged filter, fluid needs to be changed..transmission serviced...weak pump, bands/clutch packs worn...etc
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: 2.0 TDCi Ford Mondeo '03 plenty revs but lost most

Lost power and Black smoke:

You have a Failed MAP Sensor and / or the vacuum line is off or cracked.

The ECU thinks the engine is under full load and is getting all the fuel it can to the engine.

Hope this tip helps guide you to solve this problem.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda accord manual transmission revs high, car barely accelerates. What would cause this problem? the clutch was replaced 2 years ago.

You know the clutch is slipping
& continue to drive & ruin that

Now you can do another clutch
service, while your finding the answer
to what your asking

Next car get an automatic & just change
the fluid every 3 years

Having multiple intermittent problems


I guess the overall answer is yes it could be the ECM.
Code 16 is high or low system battery voltage.
Code 21 and 22 are both for the throttle position sensor.
And code 43 is for the electronic spark control which controls engine spark timing.
The ECM grounds various relays to make things happen such as turning on the cooling fan. So a faulty ECM could cause all of the symptoms. But so could a wiring problem in one of the harnesses.
Especially a ground problem somewhere.
If the alternator suddenly starts overcharging the system the ECM can shut down the car to protect the circuits. Unusual, but possible.
This info may not help much, but somebody is going to have to test the circuits when the engine dies or when the symptoms happen.

Hyundai Accent intermittent jerking


Revs.
As for the issue of the idle revs, that's perfectly normal. When it's cold outside, every car is supposed to have a higher rev in order to warm up the engine quickly. In more advanced cars, the computer wont even allow the engine to shift into overdrive when it's cold outside in order to avoid extreme engine stress and damage. When it's warm outside, the engine doesn't need to idle high because the engine is already at a good operating temperature. Not much will be needed to get it to the right temperature.
Intermittent Jerking

There is a long list of things that could cause intermittent jerking. I'm going to name all of them for you, but your best best would be to go to a mechanic and have them do an inspection.
Clogged PCV Valve (Possibly if you don't get your oil changes on time, sign of a tune up)
Bad DIstributor Cap (not likely at 140,000 miles)
Clogged fuel filter (Very likely, usually done with tune up)
Bad Fuel Pump (Not so likely)
Defective ECM (also not likely)
Vacuum hoses/leak (not likely but possible)
MAS (Mass Airflow Sensor--not likely but possible)
Fuel INjectors (if so, sign of a needed tune up)
Faulty Spark Plug Wires (not likely if tune up is recent)
Faulty O2 Sensors (possibly)

Clogged Catalytic Converter (Possible)

Engine won't fire up, bgin to but dies quickly. Plenty of fuel, new battery.


Yes, its the first suspect. Check your distributor cap for corrosion or wipe it with clean dry cloth some is only due to moisture inside it. Next is your spark plug.
